Please take advantage of our Basic Handgun/Concealed Carry Package.  With this, you get both courses for only $50 more than just the Concealed Carry alone.  We want to encourage new shooters to get the most out of our Concealed Carry course as the practicle drills are for Intermediate to Advanced shooters.  We will continue to have our Range Days, but now include seperate Skills Development Clinics.  These short stand alone courses will be where we can really dive into such things as Marksmanship Improvement Drills, Malfunction Drills, Firearms Retention Skills and other personal protection skills.  The Range Days will continue to look like they have in the past, but with a few new twist this year (look for new targets and drills).
